1) pick small first step: take average minutes late to ONE routine appointment/responsibility i.e., work in the AM.

2) first goal=3/5 days reduce average late minutes by 5.

3) second goal=4/5 ” “

4) third goal=5/5 ” “

5) fourth goal=3/5 days reduce average late minutes by 7.

6) plug in same sequence from above, until on time each day.

7) motivate on time behavior by=giving self=something fantastic=each on time day=each week goal met

8) tell someone=be accountable

9) have clocks visible=EVERYWHERE

10) break down steps=each step=for getting out of house in AM=starting with wake up=allot allowed time to each=to make work on time

11) have list of each step=place allowed time next to step=with goal time for completion=mark off=when step completed=in time

13) once on time=for one month=AM work arrival=add next on time goal=new goal=i.e., bed on time=or when meeting friends.

14) start from beginning with it=average late minutes=reduce by 5=3/5 or some number=that will allow=wiggle room=not perfect at first.
